I would be but I committed to another friend's ride that weekend. He lives in VERY upstate Vermont and is doing a 2 day ride - 3 of my friends are going too. After that, when the ride is over on Sunday, I head North into Canada for the next week to participate in the Roaming Rally starting in Eastern Ontario.

Maybe next year. The New England Classic Charity ride kicked ass - it's the best Camp-n-Ride that you can do in the Northeast on a skinny bike, at least as far as I've seen. Sorry I will miss it.

I'm scheduled to bring the bike in for a new top end, but its still running ok. Just hard to hit start. My goal is to do it before anything catostrophic happens. I don't like stopping on the trail because I have no fan. The piston owes me nothing with 250 hours on it. Hopefully not too many other parts are out of spec. They'll be wrenching while I am on vacation with the 990 in Canada.
Where you guys meeting ? What time ?

I'd say meet at 10 at Mt Misery, Sunday. Put your water wings on, the puddles will be deep.

This sounds like an event I will definitely be attending. Love that the AMA is only recommended

utah is in september k61...unless you are doing a different utah.

the quarry run is one of two events of the year not to be missed (the roaming rally isn't in this group - it is automatic no questions asked mandatory attendance). the other one is the hammer run in early november in southern nj. both are 2 day events and an exceptional amount of fun.

if my hand is well enough i'll be doing the dirty dabbers and rumor has it that will become the third event not to miss.
